what i try to do is put the cursor line right on the spot above the point on the ruler and see the number before i touch it.
but problems come when there is no point there and i need a point there.
it’s kinda gooey.
I would also love to see some minimal “snapping” solution.
I find myself constantly creating a point near the 0 area (for example to a Volume automation) and then go to enter the exact value in the value field.
Maybe a double click to snap to the nearest rounded value?
Or maybe, newly created points start at rounded values?
Beatslaughter, what i meant about it being gooey is how when you want to make a curve just like how the curve is at a moment when no points iare there. it gets gooey trying to get points in the general area they need to be.
If we look at the way any of the sliders work, it’s the exactly how we want it to.
The area of the square at the right most end of a slider can be selected without it jumping around. But the measurement is just one point from that slider.
In fact I just tried it now and the mouse pointer seems to move to the center of the slider box.
From what I can tell, the Automation Point area is not accurately represented. The “MouseOver” area is much bigger than the “MouseOut” area. But it’s the MouseOut area that is being measured, and subsequently moved to compensate.
Since it’s only 1 point that is measured (the center of the circle) it doesn’t matter which area we use, so the center of MouseOut should be used, not the inverse.
+1 for the annoying snap behaviour.
Just clicking it and moving mouse < 1 pixels or so should not move, just select. Or as Conner says, like the sliders- move with the offset.
Also, being able to zoom would be kick ass too.
